During the shooting season, the club meets every Sunday or Bank Holiday. Set up starts around 9:30 and we start shooting once we’ve set up the field. Finishing time depends on the type of shoot we’re doing, the length of the break we have for lunch and the amount of time that we spend looking for wayward arrows. See the calendar for details of what shoot we’re doing when. That said we don’t enforce a three line whip and people can, within reason turn up and shoot other distances once this has been agreed with the field captain.
During the longer days, starting around April we also aim to meet every Tuesday and Thursday evening. Start time is generally 5.30pm dependent on work finishing time and traffic. Shooting lasts for about 2 – 3 hours.
We’re always happy to see archers from other clubs join us for a shoot for a nominal fee.
We’re in the process of organising our Winter shooting schedule and finalising arrangements for a new indoor venue to be shared with other local clubs. We’ll publish details of the new calendar when everything is agreed but our plan is to use the venue regularly through the week for training and coaching.
